2019 will be another year ripe with film festival events and series. I’ve actually missed out on a lot of local ones but there’ll be plenty to spotlight going forward – the latest of which is the Long Live The Bat party from Warner Bros. and DC. Fathom Events will be joining in and bringing the Batfandom back to the big screen for a limited time only with event screenings of the four films from directors Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher, designated for up to 600 theaters across the U.S. for four nights (one per date) beginning on May 4.
Peep the gallery below for a look at the posters and descriptions, and visit Fathom Events to buy tickets.
Already underway since last week’s premiere for Howl’s Moving Castle is what lies ahead for fans looking to follow through on Ghibli Fest 2019. You can acquire tickets and learn more about the series by clicking here while you can also take a gander at the second release of this year’s series, Hiyao Miyazaki’s 1984 animated adventure, Nausicaä Of The Valley Of The Wind, which screens in select theaters nationwide on May 20 and 21.
Celebrating its 35th anniversary, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, written and directed by Academy Award®-winner Hayao Miyazaki, is an epic masterpiece of sweeping scope and grandeur that remains one of the most breathtaking and exhilarating animated films of all time.
A thousand years after the Seven Days of Fire destroyed civilization, warring human factions survive in a world devastated by atmospheric poisons and swarming with gigantic insects. The peaceful Valley of the Wind is nestled on the edge of the Toxic Forest and led by the courageous Princess Nausicaä, whose love of all living things leads her into terrible danger, as she fights to restore balance between humans and nature. Featuring the voices of Alison Lohman, Uma Thurman, Patrick Stewart, Edward James Olmos and Shia LaBeouf.
Lastly, from our collection of info is the word of all that’s about to go down over at Udine’s Teatro Nuovo from April 26 to May 4 per the 21st edition of the Far East Film Festival. Next to an award ceremomy tributed to actor Anthony Wong and a screening of late legend Ringo Lam’s City On Fire, the festival is readying a pan-Asian raft of in-competition titles forthcoming, partly including Renny Harlin’s Bodies At Rest, Han Han’s Pegasus, Yuen Woo-Ping’s Master Z: Ip Man Legacy, Felix Chong’s Bodies At Rest, Angga D. Sasongko’s 212 Warrior, Sabu’s Jam, Lee Hae-young’s Drug War redo in Believer, Lee Byong-heon’s Extreme Job, Kim Min-ho’s Unstoppable, and many, MANY more where that came from. (Screen Anarchy).
